Toy Town

Saturday morning sunrise was gloomy and and partially foggy. However the colourful and cute small town Niagara-on-the-Lake makes even that kind of weather festive and joyful. It is the most loveable touristic place in Niagara Falls area. No matter what season it is there are a lot of people on the streets of this beautiful town. Let me show you what it looks like in the early morning.

Bird Kingdom

Among the numerous Niagara Falls attraction there is the Bird Kingdom. Here you can see a lot of exotic birds which are not usual for Canada. They are treated well and place is looking pretty close to real world for these creatures. However, it is not their natural habitat, it is only nice prison for them. Nevertheless, it is very busy place where families with kids enjoy this beautiful attraction.

Welland Canal

The Welland Canal locks allow large ships over 200 yards in length that may weigh approximately 30,000 tons to travel between Lake Ontario and Lake Erie in spite of the 326.5 ft. difference in elevation. The Welland Canal locks lift and lower these ships with the help of gravity and large quantities of water. The force of gravity is used to fill or drain a lock moving about 20 million gallons of water in about 11 minutes. It is this movement of water that actually lifts or lowers a ship in a lock. The force of gravity is so strong that it draws this water a distance of 27 miles from lake Erie to Lake Ontario filling and draining the 8 locks in between. (wellandcanal.com)
